I worked with Alana and she was great. I bought a sample gown and Louise included the belt and bird cage for free when I told her I saw a gown at another location I loved. The seamstress altered my gown perfectly.

Louise is the sweetest woman. She is very helpful and knowledgeable. I got my 6 bridesmaids dresses from her and my mother got her gown from her as well. I also got my hair piece there! beautiful crystal partial headband, little pricey but after seeing it every time I had to go there, I finally bought it when picking up the dresses. It was perfect and looked great.
My girls bridesmaid dresses were awesome. I was a little worried I wouldn't like the color I picked out since we could only see the swatch and visualize what it would look like. 2 of the girls dresses were ordered a little too big, which required a lot more tailoring but overall everything was great.
MY mother's dress was perfect! Being plus size, she felt comfortable in talking to Louise and getting advice and my mother looked amazing. Thanks Louise, you are the best

I have to admit, this place wasn't first on my list, not because I heard bad things but I nearly forgot about it. I used to live in the neighborhood and then my sister had mentioned it after going to the what...5th bridal salon we had been to? I didn't think I was going to find anything in a small shop since I already looked in quite a few.
Well, this place may have not been the first on my mind but it was the last I visited for my bridal gown. I found it, and at an amazing price! It was beautiful, fit my shape well and I never wanted to take it off. I loved it so much I even shipped it to Italy for our 'second wedding' because no other dress would do.
The service I received was pretty good. I think it depends on what time you get there and who is there. Louise was always wonderful to us and very helpful (and I also never felt pressured to buy any specific dress). She's the one that found the dress I was dreaming of though a few photos features I had in mind.

I can't thank Louise enough for help in finding my amazing dress. I am one happy bride.

DO NOT GO ANYWHERE NEAR THIS PLACE, IF YOU KNOW ANY BETTER AND HAVE SOME KIND OF CLASS YOU WON'T DEAL WITH THIS INEXPIERIENCED STAFF SHE HAS WORKING FOR HER.IF YOU HAVE A BUSINESS FOR AS MANY YEARS AS YOU CLAIM THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER THEN TO HIRE TRASH. I WALKED IN THERE AFTER MAKING AN APPOINTMENT A WEEK IN ADVANCE WITH A YOUNG GIRL ON THE PHONE AND WHEN I WALKED IN THE PLACE I HAD SOME OLD WOMAN WITH A RUDE NASTY ATTITUDE. IT WAS 5:05 AND THE PLACE CLOSED AT 6:00, SHE HAD THE GATES DOWN ON THE WINDOWS AND HALFWAY ON THE DOOR. THE LADY WAS ABSOLUTLY DISGUSTINGLY RUDE, INSTEAD OF ASKING ME IF SHE COULD HELP ME, SHE SCREAMS YOU NO WE CLOSE AT 6;00 AND I'M HERE ALONE I CAN'T HELP YOU. I TOLD I HAD AN APPOINTMENT AND SHE SAID "I DONT CARE, NO ONE TOLD ME, I'M HERE ALONE, WE CLOSE AT 6 AND I HAVE THINGS TO DO!!!" ANOTHER CUSTOMER WALKS IN AND SHE SAYS TO HER FRIENDS IN THE FRONT WHO WERE PRETENDING TO LOOK AT WEDDING MAGAZINES AT THE DESK THAT THIS IS CRAZY IT'S 5:20 I GOTTA LOCK THIS DAMN DOOR! IF YOU WANT THIS BUSINESS TO LAST ANOTHER YEAR, YOU SHOULD DO DRUG TESTS ON YOUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER EVER ENCOUNTERED SOMEONE IN THE SALES FIELD OR ANY OTHER FOR THAT MATTER THAT WOULD SPEAK TO A CUSTOMER THIS WAY. THEY LOST 10 BRIDESMAIDS BUSINESS, FLOWER GIRL, AND BRIDE, BECAUSE THEY DECIDED TO HIRE ANYONE OFF THE STREET. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE IF YOU WANT TO BE TREATED WITH RESPECT.

Gowns by Louise is horrible!! All she does is bash David's Bridal, a lot of her gowns are like made of windbreaker material and very expensive. I've been there twice with two friends who are also engaged. If you wear bigger than a size 8 good luck finding something to try on. On the contrary to what she says she does pressure you to purchase a dress by saying things like its discontinued and and it's on sale. She tried to pressure a friend of mine to buy a "discontinued" dress from her that was very dirty, 3 sizes too big and needed a lot of work to bring it up to par for 800 plus alteration. We later looked online and found the dress in many place for 600...I can go on and on lol...The place is dirty they aren't very nice they "consultants" spend half the time talking mess about Louise so imagine that. Oh and heaven forbid you say you dislike one of her "half finished designs"

I bought my wedding gown here and they gave me the sample at a discount. Things got crazy for alterations when they did a horrible job. They did fix it and it came out gorgeous. Don't go on weekends its way to hectic around prom season and they don't give you as much attention. Also the alterations person for bride's dresses doesn't work on weekends so they have to tell her what you want and that is where the miscommunications began. Then when I went to pick up my dress there was another miscommunication about when to pick up so my dress was steamed yet. They rushed to fix up their mistake so I could pick it up that day. They are fast to fix up their mistakes, but just make sure you get what you want.

I'm disgusted with everything at this store. It was a huge mistake getting a dress from there. The staff is very rude and lack customer service skills. The quality of the dresses are poor. They kept bringing me one ugly dress after another. I finally found a dress I liked and thought everything would go well from there. Then I had to deal with alterations. That was a total disaster. My dress was not ready when promised and I had to go back a couple of more times. I did not get my dress till 4 days before the wedding. It was a huge inconvenience since I did not live around the corner from the store. Then the day of the wedding the bustle broke a half hour into the reception. They charged $200 for three dainty hooks that broke like nothing. I was uncomfortable all evening and had to tie my dress. All my dancing photos are ruined. Beware of this store! There are so many other bridal stores that have wonderful and affordable wedding dresses that provide the service and respect a bride deserves for her special day.

I absolutely enjoyed the experience that I had at Gowns by Louise! Ellen helped me out a great deal picking out dress styles that would look great on all of my dress styles, and she helped me sort out some wedding ideas and pick a vibrant color that would be suitable for an outside, May wedding! I absolutely LOVED her! Also, Louise, helped me pick out invitations that matched my fiance and my personality! She was very comical, and she didn't force me to make any decisions, and understood that I wanted my fiance to be available for the decision about the invitations. She offered to help word my invitations...she was just a complete pleasure to work with. Mia was also nice. She worked with me to get a color swatch and worked with my bridesmaids with paying off their bridal gowns! I love Gowns by Louise, and would recommend them to any bride! They are really attentive to your needs, fun, and professional!

My wedding was in November and Louise helped make my day so special! I had 6 bridesmaids who all got their gowns at Louise's as well. She was helpful to all my girls, including my mother and the groom's mother. She also helped with invitations and put us in contact with a great limo company. Any time I called her with a question or last minute alteration appointment, her and her staff were more than accomodating. She went above and beyond for me and my bridal party and honestly I couldn't thank her enough. I will recommend Gowns by Louise forever! She caters to all sizes, if she doesn't have what you're looking for she will help you find it. I also purchased my head peice and accessories from her as well. The seamstresses are so good at what they do, you can tell it's really a skill and craft for them not just a job, my dress fit me like it was personally made for me. I am so grateful for the service I received at Gowns by Louise!

Louise is a very sweet woman and everyone in the shop is helpful, however, there are very limited gowns to try on. Since Louise is plus size herself and says she caters to all sizes I was super disappointed that there was very little I could try on. The woman helping me was a size 2 and didn't seem to understand that a size 8 just wasn't going to give me an idea how a gown was going to look (I wear around a size 20). I was also told that any gown could be ordered in my size but I would have to commit to buy it first. I was also told I could get the idea from holding the gown up to me. It was also suggested I could order samples for the shop for $75.00 a pop. I left the shop in tears and felt horrible about myself. I ended up buying my dream gown at Kleinfeld's for less than I would have paid at Louise's shop (I paid 1100.00 for my maggie sottero gown sold at both shops) with 100% better service and compassion. Kleinfeld's has literally the best plus size selection and makes you feel like a queen no matter what your size. Louise could learn a thing or two about investing in a larger selection of gown sizes since it would end up bringing in a whole new demographic!

My wedding day was over a year ago and I waited for time to pass because I didn't want to base my review off of my anger. I was very disappointed with the service. Louise is a very sweet person but my flowers were brown to the point that when I complained to the people who delivered them they began to pull the dead petals off my pink roses. They also messed up the sizes to the men's tuxedo's and one of the groomsmen had a totally different style from the rest. My groom should have had to dress tops one for the reception and another for the ceremony and they screwed that up as well. I don't care how long someone has been open for please see the work before you pay for anything.

I purchased my gown over the phone with Loiuse and never had a problem. I'm a very picky bride who knows what she wants. If you go there and don't know what you want then you will feel pressured: the bills ought to be paid.
She doesn't have a lot of samples but her prizing is not bad if you speed up your game. It a one stop shop

Ellen was amazing and very helpful. The alteration staff is also amazing,I had about 12 fittings but they never complained. My family lives out of state so I go there alone most of the time but never felt alone, everything came out perfectly.

807 Morris Park Ave Bronx, NY 10462
This is your one stop Shop for all things wedding. Louise makes you feel like family. No matter what your budget is, Louise will try her best and work with you on pricing. She is a loving wonderful lady. She helped me with my invites, flowers, gifts for bridal party, my Wedding gown and the mother of the bridel gown.  My Maid of Honor got her gown from Louise as well.  I was able to get some of my jewelry, tiara and veil from the store also. Make sure you keep all your receipts because
the store is very busy and having your receipts is good. They called me to remind me of every fitting and when the gowns came in. Let them know your budget. They can help give you your dream wedding at a fantastic price. No bridal shop is perfect but Gowns by Louise scores high on my list.

the store is very busy and having your receipts is good. They called me to remind me of every fitting and when the gowns came in. Let them know your budget. They can help give you your dream wedding at a fantastic price. No bridal shop is perfect but Gowns by Louise scores high on my list. Read less

I contacted this vendor in order to find out pricing and order information for a bridal gown that I wanted. When I called their store I was told by the clerk that they did not carry the Bridal Gowns by that designer they only carried the bridesmaids dresses. I called the manufacturer and was told that Gowns by Louise was the first location that came up on the list according to my zip code. When I contacted the store again and tried to explain to the clerk what I was told, she hung up on me. I found that to be rude and I would like to let them (Gowns by Louise) and everyone know that they have missed out on the commission of one Bridal gown, 8 mens tuxes, 7 bridesmaids, two flower girls and two mother dresses. If the owner of this store reads this please know that the clerk answering your phones is very rude, unprofessional and is losing business for her because of the way she treats her potential customers. The only reason I gave them one star is because you cannot complete the review unless you give them at least one star... I would give them a flat ZERO!!!

This store is crap. I went to the store to get a second dress for my wedding. They told me it was not in stock and I would have to order it. They took my measurements and told me they had to put a rush on it two months prior to my wedding. The gown they ordered was a size 12. I am a size 4. When I flipped out they told me that was the gown I chose and I ordered. I ordered it at their recommendation since they did not have it. When They finally finished chastising me for their mistake they told me I would have to take something off the rack in order to have it within the necessary time frame. They picked all these ugly dresses and when I finally found one that was passable they had the nerve to hit me with alteration fees. I would not recommend this store not even to my worst enemy. Their attitudes stink, their prices are ridiculous and the selection is crap. BTW the dress I ordered was cheaper on the internet and they had my size.

Louise has been amazing to work with. When I bought my dress, I had decided to have lap band surgery and we weren’t sure what my dress would look like when it came in in January. My mom had talked to her about my surgery and being unsure about my dress and Louise completely understood because she herself has lap band and said she would work with us if I wasn’t happy with my dress. To make a long story short, I was unhappy because my dress was huge on me. I had went in in the beginning of April and tried on more dresses and I took a dress off the rack that looked way better and I was much more comfortable in. She swapped the dresses no problem because she wanted me to be happy. Louise treats as if I’m family and I love her to death for doing all that she has for me.

I am purchasing a dress from Gowns By Louise at the moment and I have found them to be really lovely. I'm in Ireland, so my purchase is being made over the phone. They've been really helpful and really kind - reassuring me at every turn that everything will be fine and telling me to call any time if I have queries or to just put my mind at ease that things are going to plan. I can't speak for the two brides below who have had less than a satisfactory experience by all accounts, but personally, I think Gowns by Louise are great! I've given them four stars but will come back with a 5th if everything arrives as and when it should!!!!

And Louise took very good care of me the dress she recommedid is beautiful. Louise is a great person I talk to her a least once every two weeks. She made sure that I am all set for my wedding. I'm from Boston ad so far Louise does a a good job. And about the 500.00 you should of read the terms before you sined it it clearly says no refunds only store credit.

I'm very happy that I chose Lousie to help me make my day PERFECT. She has dresses for those of all sizes, me being a little chunky, was worried about having to wear all those undergarments, to tuck myself in a little, well I didn't have to wear any of those uncomfortable things. As soon as I put the dress on it fit perfect, no alterations needed. Not only does she have dresses there for you, your bridal party and mother, but she also helped me to order my flowers, limo, invitations and any other little thing that I may of needed. Louise is that caring mother type, that will help you to feel calm and fly smootly through everything. Working with Louise I had no worries. She is the BEST!!! I highly recommend LOUISE!!

Louise is the owner of the store and the moment you walk in is bragging about how she has been in the business for 25 years, however her professionalism did not show that. Her store is a mess and really unorganized. She is very pushy and on top of you. The quality of the dresses are poor and she gets an attitude if you don't like the dresses. Buyer beware , she will also keep your money if you put down a deposit and will not work with you to find another one. Perhaps that is why she has been in business for 25 years, by keeping peoples' money.

I had a horrible experience at this bridal shop. They took advantage of my inexperience and pressured me into a dress. The store is a mess and has no organization. I was never called when my dress arrived and was not allowed to see it. I visited the shop to try to get some answers and eventually saw my dress. It looked cheap and of poor quality. I begged the owner (Louise) if she could work with me on exchanging or refunding, even allowing me to buy another product. I was insulted and told to leave her store and she also told me sarcastically, "Good luck, see you when you get a divorce". I lost $500.00 dollars. It was the biggest mistake I made. I also noticed that the invitations she offered were also sold at "Party City" for half the price. I found out, later that the dress was not worth half the price I would have paid. I thank god I found the best dress, great quality in a great business, shortly after my terrible experience at this business. Please, beware. They are not as nice, once you commit your money to their business.

The service was horrible, the store is a complete utter mess and the quality of dresses appeared to look cheap. The personnel is unprofessional. I was not allowed to look at the dress I ordered, when it arrived. I compared prices with other wedding boutiques and found that they were over charging me, not just a little, but by alot! When the dress arrived, I was uneasy about how it looked and the quality. I met with the owner Louise and tried to negotiate the money I mistakingly put down and she became irate and rude. Long story short I cancelled and lost $500.00 dollars and on the way out of her store, she insulted me and said "Good luck, see you when you get a divorce". Entering this business was my worse mistake. I sincerely suggest you stay away. There are plenty of wonderful wedding dress boutiques that you can spend your money in,
look great and be more affordable. There products are of poor quality and material.

Louise and her staff are absolutely lovely! Very down to earth, honest, and helpful. They really made me feel at home there! I have purchased many things from Louise through the years; sweet 16 dress, prom dress, bridesmaid dresses, tuxedos, accessories, invitations, limos, etc. And everyone I have sent there has had a good experience as well. There is a nice selection of bridal and bridesmaid dresses, and if you are unable to find exactly what you're looking for there are a number of books that you can choose from. And Louise is very good at helping you pick a style that will flatter your body type! I'm not really sure what would possess these other previous customers to write such negative and rude comments; maybe your mood at the time negatively effected your experience, because the staff at Gowns by Louise are anything but rude!! I don't know of any other store would accommodate to your EVERY need like Louise's does. One stop shop and very nice and helpful.

I love gowns by Louise. She took one look at me and just knew what would look good on me, what my style was like. She even knew my sign lol. I tried on five dresses and picked the first one I tried on. It is perfect, what it imagined getting married in. It was a bit more than I had planned on spending on a dress but it truly is beautiful. Just read contract and be sure to come w cash when you pick up dress.

Louise and her staff did everything possible to make my daughter's wedding day a success. Even though she ordered a gown and took it home , she changed her mind and ordered another similar one seen at a bridal show-just before the wedding. Louise let her return it 2 months before the wedding and my daughter had her dream dress at her wedding. She not only rush ordered it but altered it and beat everyone else's price.

Louise and her staff did everything possible to make my daughter's wedding day a success. Even though she ordered a gown and took it home , she changed her mind and ordered another similar one seen at a bridal show-just before the wedding. Louise let her return it 2 months before the wedding and my daughter had her dream dress at her wedding. She not only rush ordered it but altered it and beat everyone else's price.

Louise herself made my experience in purchasing a gown from her so easy.
Initially I had chosen a strapless gown with flowers on bodice however when I went back (finally) for a fitting
(and they called me a few x to get there for that fitting..they were on point with everything regarding my dress)...so when I went in for my fitting I found another gown on the rack by Moonlight couture and loved it. Everyone in the shop agreed with me that it looked great on me and that it was better for me. Their seamstress was also a sweetheart and she complimented me on my figure and reassured me that I looked very good. She was so helpful and was professional and knowledeable. She did have to slightly let out the side seams of my gown because it was a tiny bit too snug however she fixed it beautifully and also created a really smart bustle of gown for me. There were no issues or problems about size of shoe heels or anything like that. Also the price that Louise gave me for this gown was beyond reasonable. Everyone who saw it on me at the wedding thought it was a gown that cost into the $1000's. I went in there 1/2 days before the wedding with my mother to pick up the gown and purchased a long white shawl to go with it..well for November a bride does need something to cover over a sleeveless gown and I do not wear fur.
